Forum: GratefulDead Subject: 5/29/71 news

The soundboard of 5/29/71 set two is finally out, thanks to Charlie Miller!
It just hit the torrent sites & should be on the Archive shortly.

This has one of the BIG Other Ones of early '71.

It isn't complete, though - the reel ran out at the end of Wharf Rat and the next two songs were missed! (Perhaps the acid got the better of the crew that night?)
Also, as with Miller's 5/30/71, there's no set one - which means we don't get Pigpen's big first-set song (in this case, a long Hard to Handle).

AND - sooner than expected, it's already on the Archive (along with Miller's remaster of 4/4/71) -

I found a cool press clip about this show.

"1,000 at Concert Drink LSD-Spiked Cider"

...

"It was okay acid," she said, "but I feel sorry for anyone who took more than two sips."

This is another description from jgmf.blogspot.com:

May 29, 1971 is infamous for the fact that lots of people had an adverse reaction to the liquid refreshments, which were apparently distributed from a 35-gallon trash container set onto the concert floor during an intermission. 35 people were sent to the hospital "with all of the symptoms of bad trips." The mayhem is described by an eyewitness:

"A girl in front of us ... fell down on the floor and started to put things in her mouth. She would pick up tin cans, papers, socks, garbage and anything else that was on the floor. She threw up all over and then tried to take her clothes off. People were freaking out all over the place. It was like people were being shot down. People would fall down and struggle to get to their feet again. One guy fell on about five people and they all fell like dominoes. ... Time actually halted as if we were dead. Jane and I were the only ones standing in a five foot radius while the people around us were squirming on the floor like dying fish."
(from the Berkeley Barb paper)

The sound is great and Phil fans can rejoice as he is very prominent in the mix (not to mention he is all over the place on Truckin-Other One). Thanks Charlie!
